Green Boxes...


A Stack of Boxes, 9" x 11 1/2"

Why are we so in love with those green boxes..? I have yet to figure it out...
What does it remind you of?

So many sizes and shapes.


Pink Macaron, 9" x 11 1/2"

The memory of what's inside those lovely boxes lingers on too. The memory of sitting in that beautiful salon, forgetting all the cares of the outside world for just a half hour... Priceless!


  1. I used these boxes and their colours as inspiration when revamping an old French Farmhouse chair for my furniture range.
    Great minds think alike!

  2. That green reminds me of a delicate layer of mint next to deep dark chocolate.

    When I was a young girl, growing up in Northern California, there was an upright sort of pared down armoire (fancy name for such a utilitarian object as this was)in the room I shared with my siblings. It had two doors; one opened to reveal some shelves, on which we stacked clothing, and the other opened on a small hanging rack. It was painted just such a green. "Mom, I need clean socks!" I would cry out. "Look in the green chest..." Thanks for the memory.

  11. You really do post the most beautiful things!

    great idea for xmas presents to bring home... thanks!

  15. Blue is most definitely not my favourite colour - in general, but I do love some shades of blue.

    The Ladurée green is sooooo beautiful and peaceful. Your paintings are gorgeous, as usual. :-)

  16. Gorgeous color and boxes. I especially like those green boxes in the company of the lavender ones. Reminds me of the lavender growing in my gardens - the new, spring growth is that delicate shade of green with new pale lavender buds. Perfect combination.

    WHAOU AS ANY french woman I just love the LADUREE TRESORS ! yours seem as delicious as the real ones !! yep yep !

  18. l love the pale green boxes but the one l have seen that l love most is the dainty and so pretty round box that only one almond cake can go in.
    But after seeing all the beautiful pictures of the boxes l thought about your pictures and l could see them done in fabric but only the most delicate sheer fabric and maybe pale green as the first one and underneath a pale pale pink, can you see it to,

  19. I look forward to receiving some new & interesting paintings & inspiration of the day, your eyes are wide open and you see wonders and delights every where you go.
